  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 100°C. Line a large baking tray with baking paper. Draw a 20cm circle on the paper and turn over. Use an electric mixer to whisk the egg whites in a clean, dry bowl until soft peaks form. Gradually add the sugar, 1 tbs at a time, whisking well between each addition. Continue whisking until the sugar completely dissolves. Add the cornflour and vinegar and whisk until just combined. Spoon onto the prepared pan and shape into a 20cm disc. Bake for 11/2 hours or until dry to the touch. Turn the oven off. Leave in the oven, with the door ajar, to cool completely.
  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, place the cherry and watermelon in a medium bowl. Combine rum or coconut water and vanilla in a small bowl. Pour over watermelon and cherry. Cover and place in the fridge for 15 mins to chill.
  3. Step 3

    Use a clean electric mixer to whisk the cream and yoghurt in a bowl until soft peaks form. Place the pavlova on a serving platter. Top with the cream mixture, cherry mixture, strawberries and raspberries. Drizzle with the syrup and sprinkle with coconut flakes to serve.
